Therizinosaurus cheloniformis
Therizinosaurus (T. cheloniformis `Scythe Lizard´) is a genus of theropod dinosaur that lived in the Campanian of the Late Cretaceous, approximately 70-75 million years ago, in what is now Asia. It was characterized for being a large and herbivorous animal, with long legs and a long, thin neck that allowed it to reach leaves and branches of tall trees.

Therizinosaurus was a very large animal, with a total length of up to 10 meters and a height of approximately 5 meters at the hip. It is believed to have weighed around 5 tons, although some specimens could have been even larger.

One of the most notable features of Therizinosaurus is its huge, curved claws, reaching a length of up to a meter each, which it probably used to tear leaves and branches from trees and also to defend itself against predators. These claws are one of the most distinctive features of this dinosaur and suggest that it was a herbivorous animal specialized in gathering food, capable of reaching the highest leaves and branches of trees.

Although Therizinosaurus had a similar appearance to carnivorous theropods, such as Tyrannosaurus rex, it is known to have been a herbivorous animal. Its diet was based mainly on leaves and branches of trees and shrubs, which suggests that it was quite a specialized food-gathering animal.

Although several Therizinosaurus fossils have been found in different parts of Asia, there is still a lot that is unknown about this dinosaur. However, it is believed to have been a fairly common animal in its time and to have played an important role in the ecosystems of the late Cretaceous era in Asia.
